Re: What am I supposed to do with the other half.....

Funny, last night, I had the sweet tooth pretty bad, and we have NOTHING in the form of yummy in our house right now. I broke into the Baker's chocolate (semi-sweet) and ate like a half cup!

Semisweet is delicious. I think you can also melt it with butter and sugar and make a chocolate drizzle for cookies or brownies, but you'd have to look up the recipe. Hmmm... Oatmeal cookies. I'm off to the kitchen while DD naps!!

You could make Genache, and then pour it into a pie crust, refridgerate until set, then put your favorite ceram pie on top of it. I make a Peanut Butter pie and put Genache as the first layer, Peanut butter filling, then wipped cream. Then I sprinkle Reces Pieces on the top.

Or, you could make the genache, then dip cookies into it.

You could cut down your fudge recipe, and just make extra fudge. You could melt it down and make home made hot cocoa.

If you have any cocoa powder, there is a "recipe" to use the cocoa powder the same as bakers chocolate, you add a certain amount of cocoa powder to a certain amount of shortening, melt the shortening and then mix well, then you can melt the rest of your bakers chocolate into it, and make another batch of fudge. The ratio should be on the cocoa powder container.

I had a fudge recipe that called for 12oz of baking chocolate, and I had 2oz of chocolate and 10oz bag of chocolate chips, so I just melted it all together and made my fudge (the chocolate chips were actaully half dark choco chips and half mint chips, so I made choco mint fudge. YUM!).

You could melt it, then coat marshmellows in it.

God bless,
Michelle

Even if it's unsweetened, you could use it to make some really special hot chocolate--just grate it, mix it into hot milk, and add sugar to taste. I like to drop in a heavy dose of cinnamon as well.
